American Vandal: Season One

Band Vs Brand (MVD Visual/Cleopatra)
On the surface, it's an odd topic for a documentary: how the branding a rock band is so important, at times overshadowing the group's music. It seems more apt for a college-level marketing class than an entertaining movie for music fans, but it somehow manages to be just that. Through a slew of interviews with figures in the hard rock and metal world (including musicians from Megadeth, Hawkwind, Great White, Keel and Slayer), director Bob Nalbanian goes to show how the right logo, attitude and legacy songs can outlive original band members with plenty of examples of how rotating line ups seem to have little effect on the success of many groups.
